TYLER - Sunday's horrific mass shooting is bringing up safety concerns for East Texas churches. Many consider church a place of peace.
Some say Sunday's shooting took that sense of security away from church.
Many East Texas churches already have security prepared to handle dangerous situations.
I spoke with Father Anthony Steoppel at Bishop Thomas K Gorman Catholic School who says security shouldn't be needed in churches.
"You should be able to go anywhere and not be afraid of violence," Father Steoppel says. "This is a manifestation of our culture and we need to promote love among one another."
